Lay Eucharistic Ministers

CommunionThe Lay Eucharistic Ministers assist at the altar, read prayers, and administer the Bread and the Wine at the two Sunday Services, and at other special services during the Church Year. Some of the Ministers have received additional training to take Communion to members of the parish who cannot attend regular services. This activity follows the practice of the Early Church in which members of the fellowship brought bread from the shared table to those who were not present at the service. We are trained by the Rector and we meet occasionally for discussion of our mission, and prayer.

Any parishioner wishing to join the Lay Eucharistic Ministers should speak with the Rector. A candidate should be willing to serve at both the 8:00 am and the 10:00 am services. He or she should be able to lead the prayers and also read the lessons on occasions when there are no lectors.
